Google with its partner TP-LINK has launched OneHub, a router for a new way to WiFi. It is a wireless router and has internal antennas and useful lighting.
OnHub searches the airwaves and selects the best channel for the fastest connection. A smart software keep working in the background, automatically adjusting OnHub to avoid interference and keep network at highest performance.
Users can even prioritize a device, so that their most important activity like streaming videos gets the fastest speed.
OnHub can be managed using the Google On app, available on Android or iOS.
The Google On app tells users how much bandwidth their devices are using, allows to run a network check, and if there’s an issue with Wi-Fi, the app offers suggestions to help.
OnHub automatically updates with new features and the latest security upgrades, without interrupting the connection.
Further upgrades of OnHub can support smart devices, whether they use Bluetooth Smart Ready, Weave, or 802.15.4. The company also plan to design new OnHub devices with other hardware partners in the future.
OnHub is available for pre-order for $199.99 from online retailers in the U.S. including the Google Store, Amazon, and Walmart.com.
It will be available for sale in retail stores in the U.S. and in Canada in the coming weeks.
